Hello! I’m a little later today than usual. It’s been a week and a half with our washing machine smoking up the kitchen just as I was researching vacuums and freezers to replace the ones that have quit. Then Tristan became covered in spots yesterday and we had the official diagnosis this morning that he has chicken pox. It isn’t going around our town, so we’re not quite sure where he’s picked them up; not that it matters. He was tired today and was only starting to feel bad late this afternoon. Strangely, I’m the one who’s itchy with a sore throat. Perhaps I’m finally being hit with what I’ve been trying to fight off for weeks. When everything seems to go wrong, it’s a great time to head out to nature and enjoy the beauty and simplicity of it. This week’s linky is all about life in the forest, which fits in well!
